Maintaining a Muse built site in DWCS5?

I have just did a total rebuild of my site in Muse for my charity. I own an old copy of Dreamweaver CS5 and my plan was to maintain the site that I built in Muse with DWCS5 because we are a charity and we cannot afford to keep paying the monthly rent for Muse. We very rarely make changes.

I opened the index.html (built in Muse) to my DWCS5 and it doesn't look anything like the site I built!

What are my best option since my charity has no money?

  1. When I want to make changes, should I buy Muse again for one month and make changes?
  2. When I want to make changes, should I figure out how to do that in DWCS5?

none of your members (or their kids) have Adobe Muse?

you can edit a Muse site in DW CS5 but as soon as you do its no longer a Muse site... just normal html and ime a web site that never changes is worse than having no site at all

Have no idea about DW CS5 and what it can do. I don`t know your coding knowledge.

The Muse Site can not easily get maintained in DW but I invite Pavel Homeriki​​ and Ussnorway to this.

They have much better coding skills than me (which is not difficult BTW ).

Best Regards,

Uwe

You have only two options:

1) You have to pay for Muse

2) Remake the site in the Wordpress (this is free) and pay for Muse will not have to.
